Chipotle Lime Cashews By Brittany Cooper August 5, 2019 Alright, I admit it—I’m a snacker! I love my snacks, especially these Chipotle Lime Cashews. There are a bunch of options on the market when it comes to snacks, but not all are created equal. Also, why spend tons of money on processed snack foods when you can easily make your own tastier version for a fraction of the cost? A smart option when it comes to snacks: healthy fat sources like nuts. Healthy fats are great for curbing cravings and keeping your blood sugar stable instead of leaving you ravenously eating everything in your pantry—we’ve all been there. However, like snacks, not all fats are the same. Typical options at the store claim to be “health” foods, but the truth is, store-bought options usually contain unhealthy processed oils, meaning saturated fats. That’s why I love these Chipotle Lime Cashews. Like other homemade foods, they completely take the guesswork out of hidden ingredients, are 100% healthy and help you feel your absolute best. These Chipotle Lime Cashews are also completely customizable. Take away the chipotle lime and swap it out for something sweeter if you have more of a sweet tooth. Sometimes, I like to make these with cinnamon: Instead of ¼ cup lime juice, use one egg white, 2 tbsp. cinnamon and sprinkle with stevia—and just like that, you have cinnamon sugar cashews ready for snacking.
